Lessons in Agile Management is My Masterclass Textbook

I’m often asked what is the curriculum for the 3-day Advanced Kanban Masterclass designed for coaches, consultants and managers leading change initiatives. While we do have a concise published curriculum, my usual response it, “It’s everything that you need to know to be successful with Kanban but isn’t in the Kanban book.

LEAN KANBAN SOUTHERN EUROPE MADRID 9-10 MAY

I’m proud to be the opening key note speaker at the first Lean Kanban Southern Europe Conference in Madrid, Spain next month. This small event is an attempt to emulate the first Lean Kanban conference in Miami in 2009 and catalyze the emergence of a strong community in Spain and Portugal. It’s a 2 day event with a single track of top quality international speakers the first day with 2 tracks on the 2nd day, one offering a full day of Spanish presentations with speakers from Spain, USA, Peru and Argentina. The pricing makes the event accessible for Spanish and Portuguese attendees in these tough economic times and makes this a truly low cost opportunity to learn Kanban and meet some of the leading practitioners from around Europe and further afield. There is still time to register. Pricing starts at 445 euros + VAT. Register now! Come enjoy Madrid and build your network of Limited WIP Society members.
